Lesson Worksheet: The Engineering Design Process and Energy Science • 4th Grade

In this worksheet, we will practice describing the engineering design process as it relates to solutions to energy use.


Fill in the blank: The city of Ashland hired an engineering firm to build wind turbines that could only be 150 feet tall. This requirement is an example of a .

  • Acriterion
  • Bconstraint
  • Cprototype
  • Dproblem


Fill in the blank: A civil engineering firm was working on designs to build a dam that created the most power. They built a small version of the dam and ran it through several tests to see how well it worked. This step in the engineering design process is .

  • Aidentifying the problem
  • Bdetermining constraints and criteria
  • Cevaluating and presenting data
  • Dtesting the model
